Three Treatises on the Divine Images (Saint John of Damascus)

$17.00

 Product Description

Author: Saint John of Damascus

Format: paperback

Is all Christian art fundamentally blasphemous? That was the question posed aggressively by the Christian iconoclasts of the eighth century in a bitter controversy. The resounding answer, "No" from John of Damascus helped to secure the future of art in the service of Christ. Without his brilliant defense, both profound and at times earthly, we might well have had no icons, murals, and mosaics in churches to elevate and enrich our spirits. This fresh and complete translation, by a distinguished patristic scholar, of John's three treatises on the divine images shows us the issues at stake both then and now. Professor Louth places all of us who care about them in his debt.

-- Lionel Wickham, 
former Lecturer in the Faculty of Divinity of Cambridge
